Using a proxy requires setting the ZVM’s operating system to send/receive internet traffic through a proxy.
Note: Authenticated proxy is not supported. Therefore, the user running the ZVM service must have full permissions on the proxy server. The user should not need a username/password combination in order to access the internet.
To set up a proxy with Zerto:
- Open an elevated command prompt on the ZVM machine in question, and use the Microsoft Bitsadmin tool per Microsoft's TechNet article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc770473.aspx (please note that this is an official Microsoft article and is not related to Zerto)
- Use the following syntax from the article: bitsadmin /Util /SetIEProxy localsystem MANUAL_PROXY <proxy list> <bypass list>
For example, a proxy with address 192.168.0.25, will need to run the following command: bitsadmin /Util /SetIEProxy localsystem MANUAL_PROXY https://192.168.0.25:8080 NULL
